UFC Fight Night 137 will see the promotion return to Brazil once again. After their debut in Moscow, Russia, and a fiery main event, the build to UFC 229 continues. Dana White has reason to worry as the date approaches for the Fight Night event, as it has been plagued with last minute changes, which has left the card to have been hastily put together.
Whatever be the case, it still remains a promising card, which could see some spectacular matches. With two big debuts onto the UFC scene, as well as a huge main-event (which was the major victim of change), the card does not look as if it was hastily thrown together at all.
UFC Fight Night 137 will be headlined by a fight between Eryk Anders (11-1) and Thiago Santos (18-6).
Thiago Santos was brought in as a replacement for Glover Teixeira, for the Texeira - Jim Manuwa fight. With 2 wins and a loss in 2018, Santos looked solid in his last fight -- a unanimous decision win over Kevin Holland at UFC 228 -- and will look to continue his good form, in what could be a memorable 2018.
Eryk Anders has had only one solid win in 2018 and has fought in two bouts. His loss against Lyoto Machida early in February left a sour taste in everyone's mouth, as the Split Decision loss was a controversial one. A win against Tim Williams, offset this result, and another win would go a long way to spell a good 2018 for him.
